April 22 is the day that people from around the world celebrate Earth Day. It is being celebrated not just to increase appreciation for our Earth’s natural environment but also to raise awareness for the current happenings; in order to participate in saving our only Mother Earth.
It was first founded as an environment teach-in on April 22, 1970 by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson. It first focused in the U.S., then on 1990 Denis Hayes, (an original national coordinator), took it international wherein he organized events in 141 nations.
Today marks the 41st celebration of Earth Day and Google celebrate this by featuring an animated Google Doodle on its homepage. The animated Google Doodle of Earth Day’s 41st Anniversary featured 9 different animals such as pandas, penguins, lion, fish, frog, butterfly, koala bear, bird and bear. This year’s theme is about “A Billion Acts of Green”, wherein it encourages people around the world to do a billion separate acts of environmental activities.
Since it’s an animated doodle each animal do different moves whenever you point your mouse cursor in each animal. The fish and the bear are not automatically visible in the homepage, you need to point your mouse cursor at the river so that the fish will come out and jump up until the bear catches it.
Google simply amazed us by their ever impressive and interactive animated Doodles. Great job Google!
